• Return to School Handbook Introduction


    Mill Valley School District’s plan for the return to school focuses on the health and safety of all staff and students. This handbook was developed in partnership with the Marin School Nurses Organization (MSNO) to support a healthier school environment during the COVID-19 pandemic.


    We have implemented health and safety measures that include the regular cleaning and disinfecting of all high touch surfaces, restrooms, and common areas. Additionally, we have installed plexiglass barriers in our school offices, upgraded our HVAC filters, HEPA air purifiers have been purchased for each classroom, prepared classrooms and common areas for physical distancing with visual markers, and posted signs across campus reminding students and staff to frequently wash their hands and to wear the face coverings at all times.


    All measures taken are in accordance with the Marin County Office of Education (MCOE) Rethinking Marin Schools Task Force, Marin County Health and Human Services (MCHHS), California Department of Education (CDE), the California Department of Public Health (CDPH), and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).


    This Handbook will remain fluid and responsive to new information from local, regional, state, and federal agencies. This Handbook is intended to offer each community member a central location to access information during this continually evolving experience. As new decisions are made and as content is developed, it will be added to this Handbook.


    The successful implementation of our reopening plan depends on the cooperation and support of our whole school community. By adhering to the safety precautions outlined in our plan, we are confident that together we can safely and successfully reopen.
